And in cruisers you can deal with an army that gets to you, kinda the point of a cruiser.

Not proc enough? See dknight0001's post on page 2? 3 phased tetryons = 90% proc chance per volley. Add in 3-4 DHCs and you're looking at over 100% proc chance each volley. Definitely worth it.
Lower DPS? Versus MKXII, for the beams it's all of 8dps, the DBB's it's 10dps. For 6 beams that 48dps lost for 4 times the proc chance.
They said a 90% proc chance for turrets well like I thought and was confirmed after my last post there are no polarized tetryon turrets in game. Only polarized tetryon weapons you can get are Beams and DBBs.
